Members - Get Involved

The Honors Residential College community thrives when each resident gives back to the community in a way they are gifted. Contributing to the community does not mean necessarily holding a formal leadership role in the community. It can be as simple as getting to know the residents around you on your hall. Check out the ways you can contribute below:
